11-Jan-2021 -- I’m making a road trip through part of outback Queensland, Australia, focusing on the Dinosaur Trail. While en route to this area, I stopped at this Degree Confluence Point - southeast of the town of Roma - that had not been visited in almost 14 years.
From the tiny settlement of Condamine, I followed the signs for the feedlot, and ended up on a rural road that passed next to the point (800m from the feedlot). I noticed three changes from the previous visits (in 2002 and 2007):
- The road is now paved (as a one-lane strip in the centre; to pass, traffic needs to shift to the dirt verge on each side).
- The fence beside the road has now gone.
- The field containing the point is currently fallow (with long grass growing at the time of my visit)
Here is a remote-controlled aerial video of this confluence point.
